Tonwerigha Oyintonbra Tombrown, alias Michael Freeman, and his company Yoshinaka Corporation, appeared at the Federal High Court, sitting in Asaba, Delta State on a 34-count charge bordering on obtaining money by false presence.

The alleged offence was committed last year.

Businesswoman, Izabela Glogowska, alleges Tombrown posed as a prominent online trader, Michael Freeman, to hoodwink her to part with her money claiming it will be paid in her Perfect Money account.
